"I did not become a resistance fighter, a smuggler of Jews, and a defier of Nazis all at once. First steps are always small: I began by hiding food under a fence. Now I was smuggling Jews to the Janowka forest." Irene Gut Opdyke was a teenager when the German army invaded Poland in 1939. She was forced to work in an ammunition factory, and then a laundry for the army. At the same time, she began helping Jews to escape from the Nazis. 'Resistance to the Nazis' shows how Irene Gut Opdyke was just one of many ordinary people who found ways to resist Hitler's armies in Europe, and to save people from the Holocaust. This book explains the different forms of resistance, from the efforts of people to keep their culture alive in the concentration camps, to fighting the German arm by sabotaging supplies and communications. Each book includes: first-hand accounts from people involved in the Holocaust; an in-depth study of a key topic mentioned in the book; detailed timeline to help place important events; and a further reading and sources section.
